Dynamic Column Header

I need to display the values for current month (chosen from a slicer), previos month (which is a measure) on a table visual in Power BI.However, when I chose the reporting month in the slicer, the column headers are seen as Measure Names as opposed to the Current Month, Previous Month e.g. 202212, 202211 - This is how it needs to be shown. Does anyone have any ideas?

Hi @Alsapeter 


Currently the measure names cannot be changed dynamically according to selected values. Measure names and their formula are stored as meta data in the model without considering the actual data used in them so they should be fixed values. 


From your screenshot, the matrix visual has other measures [Limit] and [MoM] whose names seem not need to be changed, so there is no good workaround or alternative method currently.
